Like other visitors, we wanted to stay close to Lassen Park. Mineral is the closest you can get to the park but not worth the rip off from the unfriendly owner. We had booked two nights and expected a modest stay. However, the motel has not been well cared for with a lot of deferred maintaince. Our room had lights that did not work in the bathroom and main room, and a heater we were afraid to use. Loose wiring did not invite us to trust having the heat on while we slept. We were expecting no phones and no tv no refridgerator, but did not expect dirty floors, broken door locks and security chains, and no hot water for shower or sink, and lousy beds and pillows. There is one place to eat, the owners cafe. Not the worst we have ever had but certainly overpriced for what you get. What a dump. We decided not to stay the second night and of course, no refunds.
Our advise, if you are visiting the park, stay in Chester. Even though you are 30 miles out of the park, you can at least stay at a Best Western, have some amenities and some choices on places to eat. The drive through the park is great and really you can see all y ou need to in one day. You can stay at Redding or Red Bluff. Good luck
